    You do not need a lawyer to represent you at OATH hearings but if you need help understanding why you received a City summons and how to respond to it, you can contact the OATH Help Center online or visit a Help Center in person. There is a Help Center at all OATH Hearings Division locations. No appointment is necessary; just walk in during regular business hours.
